If you are looking for new curtains for your home, the term beaded curtains may have come up in your discussions with friends or relatives. After all, beaded curtains are one of the ‘in things’ when it comes to interior design in the last couple of years.

If you are not absolutely sure what beaded curtains are, however, you may not know if they are the right choice for your home. Or if they would look as nice as the more traditional kind.

What are beaded curtains? — These are a type of curtain that are made out of beads that are threaded onto long pieces of string and then attached to a top piece.

They come in all colors, both plain and patterned beads and in many different kinds of styles. If you are looking for something a little more unusual for your home, then a pair of beaded curtains may be a good choice.

Not just useful for windows, but for doors too — When you are considering installing curtains in your home, remember you can also use beaded curtains for doorways.

In fact, they are wonderful in a doorway where you do not want a complete door as it would make the room too dark. This is due to their ability to let light in while still offering a barrier against people seeing through them.

Some people also use beaded curtains for doors that remain open to the outside during a certain part of the day. This is because a beaded curtain will let the air in while making sure flies and other bugs stay out.

Look at different colors and styles — When choosing beaded curtains for your home, be sure to choose the right color for the room and the right style.

That means decide if you want plastic or glass beads, if you prefer plain or colored beads and, of course, which of the many colors available will work the best with the room.

If you are not sure about the shade of a color, be sure to contact the supplier to find out. The wrong shade could make the curtain look out of place, and make you unhappy that you bought it.

How to get the best deal — You will see many styles and colors of beaded curtains in offline shops. If you are looking for the best price, however, it makes more sense to do your shopping on the Internet.

Not only will this allow you to consider beaded curtains from the other side of the country, you can even buy them from the other side of the world.

As many beaded curtains are actually made in Asia, it may even pay you to look at Asian suppliers. Especially if you will be buying more than one or two pairs.

Prices from an Asian supplier will usually be much less and, if you buy more than a couple of pairs, you can usually get a discounted shipping rate as well.
